The school is intended to enable advanced graduate students or early post-docs to target the next step in their career. The idea is to provide a first step into new scientific topics and the associated techniques at the interface of Cold Atoms and Quantum Optics. Each scientific topic will be given at least 4 hours, of which 50% are dedicated to the techniques and real-world challenges. In addition we will offer perspectives in funding and careers beyond science in a set of hour-long lectures.
